What makes us different?
1.A degree to look behind things
Industrial design is the discipline that is responsible for creating and developing the equipment of the world around us. If you have a restless mind if ever you wondered why an object is that way, if you wonder who creates things around you as your phone, your shoes, your bike or chair where you are sitting, the answer is here. The industrial designer is responsible for designing and shaping the objects that surround the human being, from your car to the fork we eat every day.
